As the New Year began I found myself dealing with endless career reflections, and as I stand now, one thing I know for sure is that no path can never be the same in the creative sector. I am at peace with where I am in life, it is nothing I imagined yet a wonderful experience, well, I should just say its perks surpasses the frustrations so I am never going to stop fighting for the dream. Things have changed a bit; in fact, I don’t think my life will ever be the same. Currently you’ll find me slaving somewhere in Florida/Mexico/ At Sea…just somewhere in the middle.

I chose to go on this journey to discover, learn and heal. The world is big and you might as well see all you can… I feel more inspired, there’s nothing much we need in life but love, now I know. While I am away feeding the wanderlust disease my team in Cape Town and Johannesburg will take care of you (Thase). I will also continue creating and pushing this dream project forward on my side with a global perspective. I will not be gone for too long!

And in the spirit of nurturing ourselves creatively, I got together with my colleague and we made images of ourselves for us. We spend most of our time playing by the rules in order to meet the standards of what is required of us daily. Thus getting a moment to do what we truly desire is fulfilling. Of course you get to see the ones made by me first! Model/Collegaue is photographer Ana Prestes from Brazil.


The session was not ‘pre planned’ merely inspired by the ruined yet attractive beach space in Cozumel, Mexico. I am yet to explore more of Cozumel and just cover its colorful streets. But for now feed on these few images and share with yours!
